Daily Prayers for February 24

O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you

as the day rises to meet the sun.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Come, let us bow down and bend the knee : let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

Song “Amazing Grace”

You order your kingdom with justice, Lord : and judge the nations with loving-kindness.

Psalm 119:17 20

Deal bountifully with your servant : that I may live and keep your word.

Open my eyes, that I may see : the wonders of your law.

I am a stranger here on earth : do not hide your commandments from me.

My soul is consumed at all times : with longing for your judgments.

You order your kingdom with justice, Lord : and judge the nations with loving-kindness.

Genesis 41:1 – 13 Hebrews 11:23 – 31

You order your kingdom with justice, Lord : and judge the nations with loving-kindness.

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Train us to be faithful, Lord, and teach us your ways so our lives may reflect you, to the glory of God the Father. Amen.

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you : wherever he may send you;

may he guide you through the wilderness : protect you through the storm;

may he bring you home rejoicing : at the wonders he has shown you;

may he bring you home rejoicing : once again into our doors.
